Professor Campbell Wins the 2022 ACM UbiComp 10-year Impact Award

In 2012 Hong Lu, a PhD student in Computer Science at Dartmouth co-advised by Professors Andrew Campbell and Tanzeem Choudhury, developed StressSense, an innovative smartphone app to detect stress from human voice. StressSense won the 2022 ACM UbiComp10-year impact award. Given annually, this award recognizes papers with sustained and significant impact over at least a decade. 

Presented at ACM UbiComp 2022 – the top conference in ubiquitous computing  –  the StressSense paper received the following citation:

"By convincingly showing how smartphone microphones could be used to unobtrusively recognize stress from the user's voice, this work paved the way for other numerous efforts in the area of stress detection from sensory data, a topic that, 10 years later, is still very relevant for both academia and industry".

This is the third time Professor Campbell has received a 10 year impact award for his research in mobile sensing. In 2019, the CenceMe app received the ACM SIGMOBILE Test of Time Award for "inspiring a huge body of research and commercial endeavors that has continued to increase the breadth and depth of mobile sensing". In 2018, his work was recognized for "pioneering machine learning across mobile phones and servers" with the ACM SenSys Test of Time Award.
